Suffering from viral warts. Prescribed zinc sulfate. What dosage would be safe to take?

Hi, my doctor reccomended zinc sulfate for me as a possible wart treatment. What kind of dosage would be safe/effective to take for zinc sulfate in the treatment of viral warts? I saw some studies done online that showed good results using around 660 mg of zinc sulfate (50 mg zinc per 220 mg pill ), but my doctor forgot to tell me what dosage to take. Thanks

Hello
Thanks for the query . 200mg of Zinc Sulphate taken 4 times a day has been shown to help as an immunological treatment . However , there is no guarantee that it works .
Thanks and take care
